Hiroshima-style okonomiyaki differs from Kanto and Kansai-style recipes in many ways: it is cooked on an iron griddle before your eyes by the staff, it contains a large amount of cabbage, and made with eggs. By the way, did you know that every okonomiyaki restaurant in Hiroshima has its unique version of Hiroshima-yaki? Its taste, smell, and visual will completely satisfy all of your senses. If you have a chance to visit Hiroshima, for which Hiroshima-yaki would you go?
The noodles are usually loosened with cooking oil, but at Nagataya, they use a special tonkotsu soup to loosen and season their noodles. The final touch is a special sauce by the well-known sauce company, Otafuku! This is what separates their Hiroshima-yaki from the rest.
Their special sauce has more tomato and less salt compared to the average sauce.
It's only 10 seconds away from Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park! Sit by the counter for a more complete experience.

2. Denko Sekka Hatsukaichi Branch
The secret to the delicious okonomiyaki at Denko Sekka Hatsukaichi Branch is that they cook their okonomiyaki without pressing down on them, so the air within traps the sweetness of the vegetables inside. The result is a super fluffy batter that envelops the original umami (Japanese savory taste) of the ingredients. Enjoy the perfect balance between this batter and their chewy noodles!
The piping hot iron griddle creates an unbelievably tasty dish, and the fluffy batter matches perfectly with the vegetables.
This restaurant is mostly frequented by Miyajima tourists and businessmen during or after work.
